president obama won to former governor mitt romney. he scored important points with voters. 48% of debate watchers we surveyed said president obama won compared to 40% who said romney won. 59% said president obama did 59% said president obama did better than expected. 15% said he did worse. 23% said he did about the same as expected. as for governor romney, 44% said he did better and 26% said worse. 26% said he did about the same as expected. these debates, all three of the presidential debates will play a role in what happens on november 6th, so will ad spending the next few weeks. ad spending, there is a lot of money to be spent the next two weeks. >> a lot of money, but with the days running out, the candidates have to make tough decisions. the first you will see, this one is confusing when you look at it. let me bring up the ad spending. let me look at tv ads, it's confusing. let's pull up the state of florida. the dark blue is obama and dark red is romney. the super pacs. look at the orlando market in florida. about half of the ad spending, just shy is done by the obama campaign, mon
to vote for? these are telling me that the tactics that president obama is using, talking about diners, bayonets and big birds, they're rubbing people the wrong way. in part because they want to focus on jobs in the economy, which is this big, darker issue that the country is facing right now. it's worrying people a lot. and so, the idea that he can talk about things like the binders comment, which is really just a play off a comment that mitt romney made during the presidential debate, where he talks about his desire to hire a lot of women. and it's not helping him. i think that's reflected in the poll numbers because you're seeing right now romney is tied, or seems to have a kind of momentum moving into the time week. that's just what pollsters are saying. i think democrats feel that this will help particularly with women voters, because they make up the majority, and if they can kind of put forward this argument that mitt romney wants to take away somethings that are very important to them, then they can get the edge amongst that party leck rate. which in a very close election can b
:02 now. >>> president obama and mitt romney both claiming victory in their third and final debate. the candidates focused on foreign policy. they went back and forth on several issues, including iran, afghanistan, and iraq. the conversation got particularly heated when romney suggested the president made us weaker by going on a so-called apology tour of the middle east shortly after taking office. >> the president began what i've called an apology tour of going to various nations in the middle east and criticizing america. i think they looked at that and saw weakness. then when there were dissidents in the streets of tehran, a green revolution, holding signs saying, is america with us? the president was silent. >> nothing governor romney just said is true. starting with this notion of me apologizing. this has been probably the biggest whopper that's been told during the course of this campaign. and every fact checker and every reporter has looked at it, governor, and said this is not true. >> romney also criticized the president for not going to israel on his first trip to the mid
in the states that could decide the race. president obama will campaign in delray beach, florida, before heading to dayton, ohio. vice president biden will meet him there. mitt romney will campaign out west. he'll join mitt romney in colorado. the republican candidates will also visit nevada today. both candidates are hoping last night's third and final debate gives them a boost going forward. president obama criticized mitt romney's foreign policy views and called them outdated. he used his stance on russia as an example. >> a few months ago when you were asked the biggest geopolitical threat facing america is russia. not al qaeda, middle east. call the 1980s and ask for their foreign policy because the cold war has been over for 20 years. >> and mitt romney countered saying the president has made this country weaker with his policy. >> and i call it an apology tour going to the middle east and criticizing america. i think they saw that as weakness. then when there were dissidents in the streets of tehran, a green revolution, holding signs saying, is america with us? the president was silent. i

that will calm down a little bit of the fireworks we saw a week ago where barack obama had to reassert himself to try to energize his base and show, in fact, he was not going to back down to mitt romney. mitt romney is going to get the first question tomorrow night. they'll both have a chance then to answer the question and then there will be a discussion on it. this is going to be about foreign policy largely, but we can't forget about the economy. that will be a major theme tomorrow night. one of the themes when it comes to foreign policy surely is going to be this report from "the new york times" about how the u.s. has been in discussions about having one-on-one meetings with iran right after the elections. now, the administration has said that that, in fact, is not true. that there is no agreement. mitt romney was asked about it and he chose not to address the question. but one of his surrogates, lindsay graham, was on the talk shows this morning and he talked about it. >> well, i think the iranians are taking advantage of our election cycle to continue to talk. they continue to enrich. >>
